What Chasteberry Is:

Chasteberry may actually deserve its name. This deciduous shrub native to the Mediterranean region, with its lancelike leaves, fragrant flowers, and gray or purple berries that look a little like peppercorns, has a long reputation for treating menstrual disorders. It's particularly noted for putting the brakes on libido, hence this common name and another: monks pepper.

Once used by monks and nuns to curb sexual desire, chaste tree is now highly valued for its ability to regulate female hormones and increase breast milk production.
